On September 13, 2002 Muslim Public Affairs Council issued a press release stating that "MPAC feels that the Iraqi people - who have been suffering
under dictatorship and sanctions - do not need to be subjected to further suffering in the trial to
remove dictatorship by foreign intervention... We call on our leadership to find a less harmful way to support democracy in Iraq. We call on our
government to reevaluate the validly and justification of military intervention...
We call on our government to offer humanitarian aid that will empower the Iraqi people rather than subject them to military strikes that may lead to the entrenchment of the dictator, or the replacement of one dictator with another...
We are concerned that resentment against the United States will be a terrible result of any invasion at this time."
